    Since 1988, Aweida Ventures has invested in data storage, software, and the life sciences. As a $100 million evergreen fund, the firm is flexible enough to invest in seed through mezzanine rounds, encompassing the lifespan of a company. The firm's founder, Jesse Aweida, is widely regarded as the father of the computer data storage industry in Colorado. He was the Chairman and President of Storage Technology Corporation, the company which he founded in 1969, and built into a billion dollar company in twelve years.
